Cooking and Baking

When did you know you were...

...A foodie? The light bulb moment when you took up wooden spoon and bowl with nary a cake mix in sight?

I had a couple of noteworthy epiphanies - but when my aunt, the premier baker of the family asked me to make 300 cream puffs for my cousin's bridal shower, I knew I had arrived. I was 18. I had been baking from scratch for several years but when this particular aunt, baking royalty in our family requested this of me, I was honored.

So what did it for you? What spectacular dish did you prepare that made you think "wow, I have a knack for this." Who did you shove from the stove bellowing, "let me show you how it's done!" How old were you?
